You can't run a brushed motor with any esc designed for a brushless motor .

no equivalent (im sure i spelled that wrong....lol)....just a 15-20 t brushed motor....nothing hot or modded.
i just like the features of the seaking water cooled,high amp supply....ect.
the p.o. of the seaking says i can run brushed,thats why he supplied the programer with it.

The only ESC that can handle brushed and brushless motors that I'm aware of is the Genius series from Graupner:

If all you need is forward, HK has two suitable ESC's very cheap.

A 540 brushless will be much more powerful than a 540 brushed. You might even want to consider running something around a 380 can motor.
